Jesus The Teacher
How was he an effective teacher
Connection with listeners
Jesus was genuine. He truly believed and lived what he preach and his followers could tell.
Jesus was available. He would both physically and mentally(by trying to understand your individual issues) to help and treach people.
Jesus used everyday language. This made he more understandable and relatable to the common people.
He challenged his listeners. This encouraged his listeners to applie the lessons he taught into their lives
He used metaphors and similes. This painted a picture for his listeners
He appealed to his listeners senses.
Spoke in parallel statements. This reinforced his content and made sure his listeners understood.
Used hyperbole/exaggeration. This helped him make a point during his lessons.
He understood the tactics his opponents were trying to use against him.
He was quick witted and used this to cleverly win debates.
What did he teach/ the sermon on the mountain
Blessed are the poor in spirit for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. Those who put god first and keep faith and confidence in him will have eternal life.
Blessed are they who mourn for they will be comforted. Only god can comfort those who suffer and see the evil reign on earth.
Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called children of god. Connect people with love and as children of god.
Blessed are they who are persecuted for the sake of righteousness. This means those who are persecuted but stay faithful and act with gods will are going to heaven
Be the salt of the earth and light of the world, meaning Christians can share the love of god on earth.
External observance of the law is not enough. One was applie the law to their lives and act out gods will.
Don’t be a hypocrite. This one is pretty self explanatory
Trust god. Put your faith in him, as Jesus did, and make doing gods will your priority.
Follow the golden rule. Also pretty self explanatory, “do to others whatever you would have them do to you” (Mt 7:12)
